Double Shawl Collar
I’m trying to create this collar….http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/f2145-p … ge_id=1232
I took a regular shawl collar extended it, and I pleated it to create the effect. Now I’m stuck. should a stitch on the fold to hold the pleat?
It doesn’t look like this in the picture…it looks more natural….how do I get the “fold” to stay?
Just a suggestion, but I would cut seperate pieces and sew together get the "pleat effect"
How deep did you make the pleat? I would make it almost as deep as the outside collar to get the desired effect. Or, as has been suggested, make 2 collars.
